What you'll do

Join us for an exclusive Halloween experience at our centre where we rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned seal pups from across Ireland.

In this spooky, behind-the-scenes experience of our rescue centre after dark, you will join our night staff in completing our evening feeds for the young pups. You will be the only ones on the premises with our staff and the seals after dark, helping to feed and care for the howling pups. In an educational talk, you will learn about the scary threats to seals in Irish waters, as well as hearing the tales and folklore of the local area, as well as the significance of seals in Ireland's culture. You'll leave with a greater appreciation for these incredible animals and an unforgettable Halloween memory!

All proceeds from this experience go directly into the running of our rescue centre, helping to purchase necessary food, medications and equipment to help our rescued pups recover and have a second chance at life in the wild. You will also have the opportunity to adopt a seal at the discounted rate of €25 if you wish.

Cost: €30 per person
Group Size: Up to 4 people
Details: Participants must be 16 years and up

Where you'll be

Come to our centre in the dark, lit up only by candles and jack-o-lanterns, where you will be met with the eerie sounds of howling hungry seals pups. A member of our team will come out to meet you about 10 minutes prior to the experience start time, at the big green gate next to the Playground in the Leisure Centre Car Park (also near the main entrance to the Courtown Woods). Our centre is located behind the leisure centre.
